Converting a conservatory roof to an EPDM insulated flat roof

Prior to this particular North Somerset conservatory roof project, the homeowner complained that their aging polycarbonate conservatory roof was very noisy especially when it rained. This meant that they were reluctant to use the room as often as they would have liked. Because of the age of the roof, the conservatory was proving to be very cold in the winter and very hot in the summer.

The conservatory roof needed to be replaced and updated to something that would give the customer back the use of their conservatory, with no maintenance required and a long-term solution against the elements.

The process of converting a North Somerset conservatory roof

In the first instance, our installers removed the old polycarbonate sheets, allowing joists to be installed. A warm roof construction was then completed with the installation of a new roof deck.  Polycarbonate insulated recovery boards were laid over this and then the EPDM fleece backed rubber membrane laid over the whole roof area.

Of course, as it is a flat roof conservatory, the natural light still needed to flow into the room so a roof dome was installed to maintain the light therefore creating a light and pleasant living space with no noisy roof and no extreme temperatures.

 

A very happy customer enjoying the benefits of their new conservatory flat roof

The customer was very happy with the new roof and is already enjoying the benefits which include:

  • A fully adhered EPDM roofing system
  • Long life expectancy
  • No maintenance or discolouring
  • Quick to install, causing minimum disruption
  • Cost effective, long-term protection from the weather
  • A regulated room temperature, keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter

If you are considering converting your North Somerset conservatory flat roof to enjoy the same benefits then we would be happy to take a look and discuss your requirements with you.
